{BEAUTY, LATELY} IF IT'S GOOD ENOUGH FOR THE OLSENS...


{Ashley Olsen in Marie Claire, 2009 } 

... Then it's good enough for us, right? I read on The Coveteur recently that Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen's hair stylist uses Dove dry shampoo to create "second day texture."

Naturally, my roommate and I were immediately like, okay we need to try it—now. Of course, we were not the only Internet-savvy young women in lower Manhattan who felt this way. On a recent walk home from work, I stopped in not one but three drug stores searching for this Olsen-approved product before finally finding it at a rather decrepit Duane Reade on 3rd Avenue.

As far as hair products go, I keep things pretty minimal, but dry shampoo is something I'm a little fanatical over. My hair is naturally oily, so in order to skip washes every other day (duh, I'm lazy) I have to have dry shampoo on hand to ensure I'm not showing up places looking like Arizona Muse at the Met Gala. (Sorry, you bald, beautiful alien.) I even need it at the end of a work day before going out after. Anyway, I have found Dove's Refresh+Care Dry Shampoo to be the best I've tried. The smell is nice, my hair doesn't feel to crispy and it really does absorb oil well. (Note: It also delivers on that second-day texture the Olsen's hairstylist mentioned.)

Are you guys big dry shampoo fanatics? I'd love to know what ones you've tried and loved. I included a few of my other success stories below—but I'm a junkie looking for a new fix, so please share!

  1. I am going to try the dove brand ASAP! I just bought the Oscar Blandi dry shampoo and its not great... I like the smell but it doesn't absorb as much as I was hoping. Sounds like the Dove Dry Shampoo is a win-win: inexpensive and good product. Thanks for the Tip!

  2. The Suave one is also awesome. I have tried both the Oscar Blandi and DryBar versions, but the Suave is my fave by far!

  3. Batiste! The original smells amazing and soaks up oil like none other. Not Your Mother's was decent at absorbing some grease but it kind of smells like a scented tampon. Yuck.

    1. Oh good to know Courtney, thank you! (Why these products smell so weird sometimes, we may never know...)

  4. Dove is my favorite too! I've tried Suave, Aveeno, Brocato, Oribe, Psssst -- the other ones have good things going for them but Dove is the overall winner for me!

  5. I am out of dry shampoo at the moment and in dire need of a trip to grab some more. My favorite so far is the Not Your Mother's Clean Freak. All the other ones I've tried made my hair feel dirtier, except for that one. Do you like Dove's better?

    1. I have Not Your Mother's at the office, and I find the smell a little off-putting but it works alright. I find the dove to be all-around better for texture and making my hair LOOK cleaner, longer. Hope that helps!

  6. I've tried the Tresemme one, I liked the scent but the white chalky residue not so much. I also like the Oribe texturizing dry shampoo and I like that a lot just not the price tag! I switched over to the Batiste with a hint of color, since I have dark brown hair. It actually makes my hair feel CLEAN but with a little texture that I like in my fine fine hair. I definitely want to try to dove though!

  8. I had no idea that the Olsen's used Dove Dry Shampoo, but it makes sense because it is awesome and they are awesome. haha! I am really into this and I put up a post a while back with my sincere love for the dove dry shampoo - check it out if you have some time: http://behindthemirrorbeauty.com/2014/03/03/strongly-worded-letter-dry-shampoo/

  10. I am also a fan of the Batiste hint of color (because I have dark brown hair) and it's cheap. However the best one ever on the planet in the universe is the Keratin Complex Voluminizing Dry Shampoo Lift Powder in Brown. You literally paint it on your roots with a brush. It's $34 though. I use it when I'm feeling fancy.

  12. Do you know why infants are so lovable? They require beauty to survive! Babies can't live without a grown-up's backing, and in this way require a grown-up's adoration to guarantee their backing. This is maybe the least demanding and most evident approach to demonstrate that beauty is for survival and not only for the sake of entertainment as it were.

  13. Dove Dry shampoos work to a great degree well to remove oil and soil from your hair when you can't get the opportunity to shower for conventional cleanser.Dove Dry shampoos are most ordinarily utilized between standard shampoos to evacuate overabundance oil and earth.
